Just a quick post to say that I really want to add these projects to our ever-growing list of things to do around the hosue.
It’s been a slow week for home improvement at around here. The closest thing to a project has been unloading the dishwasher, as we’ve been spending the past few nights (even our anniversary night) concentrating on getting our newest addition, an ’81 CJ-7, to our house. Any spare time is spent eating, sleeping, and (for Robert) doing schoolwork. Despite the fact that I’d like to mainly focus on the house, I’ll post pictures of the Jeep if anyone is interested.
Robert said he wants to work on the pallet project this weekend (woo hoo!), and I’m working on convincing him we need to go to Ikea to pick up a rug (yes, still rug stalking).
Until then, I will leave you with this teaser from our last trip to Ikea.
Please ignore the ugly phone cord box hanging out of the wall, that will be fixed later.
Our guest room is nearly done, but one of the things that still bugs me about it is the ceiling fan.
I don’t think we can take it down because this room doesn’t get fantastic (you caught that, right?) airflow, being an addition and all (and we live in Florida). I’m hoping the perfect ceiling fan will magically appear at Lowe’s, and be on sale, but I think that is kind of unlikely. Maybe we should do something like what YHL did here? Although, after the way we redid the lighting in the room the ceiling fan light isn’t really necessary. Maybe we could get a simple (not hideous) fan without a light? (They have to make those, right?) Or should we just get a retro looking table fan and find/make a sweet ceiling light fixture? Maybe the Fado pendant from Ikea?

Fans like this are completely awesome, and completely out of our price range. Also I doubt it’s the best option for the style of our room. Something rustic yet modern would be perfect. Now where do I find soemthing like that, or what do I make it out of?
